Port Elizabeth: Jan 14, 2013

South Africa will be aiming for an innings victory over New Zealand on Day Four of the second Test match at St George’s Park after reducing the visitors to 157 for four in the second innings. The Proteas, who had bowled out the Kiwis for a paltry 121 in the first innings, lead by 247 runs.

South Africa were made to work far harder for their wickets second time around. Martin Guptill scored a defiant 48, while Dean Brownlie (44 not out) and BJ Watling (41 not out) took the Kiwis to stumps on Day Three.

“The pitch has definitely flattened out,” said Dale Steyn, who took five wickets in the first innings. “It was the best day for batting. We’d love to have got another wicket but to have them four down, we’re happy with that.

“We’re 13 overs away from the second new ball, so if we can knock one over tomorrow with this older ball we can hopefully get that second new ball to talk.”

Left-arm spin bowler Robin Peterson took the first two wickets in the second innings and fast bowler Rory Kleinveldt followed up with two wickets off successive deliveries.

New Zealand wicketkeeper BJ Watling followed up an impressive first innings of 63 — more than half his team’s total — with 41 not out as he shared an unbeaten fifth wicket stand of 73 with Dean Brownlie (44 not out) to delay South Africa’s progress.
